More Trouble For Glenn McConnell

COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON FACULTY UNANIMOUSLY REBUKE HIS SELECTION AS PRESIDENT

S.C. lieutenant governor Glenn McConnell was unanimously rebuked by faculty leaders at the College of Charleston, S.C. this week – with the school’s Faculty Senate issuing a stinging “no confidence” vote in its board of trustees over their selection of the Lowcountry politician as the school’s next president.

The vote comes on the heels of a student government tally that also went overwhelmingly against McConnell’s selection.

Meanwhile, there’s a huge front page spread in this week’s editions of The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier highlighting the dissatisfaction of the school’s donors – including the chairman of the school’s foundation, who resigned in protest over McConnell’s hiring.

Oh … and as we exclusively reported a few days ago, the national outrage over McConnell’s selection is just beginning to warm up.

Add it all up and McConnell has some serious problems on his hands … and for that matter so do the trustees who tapped him to this six-figure, taxpayer-funded post.
